I am looking for source code for standard ls (for BSD and SYSV systems).
I have checked bsd-sources on uunet and could not find it. Can anyone 
give me a hint ?

Yes, on any AT&T or BSD source distribution tape.  The bsd-sources stuff
on uunet is only the things that originated at Berkeley that they changed
the licensing restrictions on.  Since the core utilities like ls are
essentially unchanged from (or at least directly derived from) the AT&T
source, they are the least likely to be released.  Look for re-written GNU
equivalents instead...

Re: the various recent postings about ls(1) source code.

1: The Berkeley source code on uunet is NOT public domain (it is copyright
   The Regents of the University of California), however it is freely
   redistributable.  You can sell it, send it to your Mom, wrap fish in it,
   whatever.  It is also part of the standard Berkeley UNIX distribution.

2: Ls was not on uunet, however, I've sent off a copy to the UUNET people
   and I expect it will be soon.  It should be functionally equivalent to
   the ls distributed with the 4.3BSD-tahoe version.  Please let me know
   if you have any problems with it.

3: Berkeley is removing AT&T licensed core utilities as public domain or
   freely redistributable replacements become available.  If you would be
   interested in contributing to this process, please contact me.  (We have
   a little list...)

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
